No one was burdened more with worry than UPS driver Brad Beatty when he learned that his unborn daughter had a black spot on her throat. The doctors weren’t sure what it was at the time.
When Lillian Bay was born in November 2009, she was diagnosed with a birth defect that often occurs in the head and neck area called Cystic Hygroma (CH). If the CH is big enough, it can press into important tissues, such as the trachea (your breathing tube) or the esophagus (the tube that goes to your stomach). Lilly required both a feeding and tracheotomy tube.
